era. he should have been king george i think, because he would have been very happy being the emperor. you are right it's not gridlock. but, if his only recourse is executive action is to veto bill after bill, i'm happy with that. there's going to be more gridlock. before we move away. jonas said if times are tough, we kind of need the government. i think that was the implication. why? why do we need the government? why can't the normal price mechanisms and market work themselves out? the government doesn't create jobs, it screws things up. >> what do you think, john? >> look at the numbers of the stock market. it's safe to say some of the stuff they agreed on in '08, in '09 -- >> that is the federal reserve. >> the tax cuts were not the federal reserve. the cash for clunkers bailing out general motors. there were a lot of stuff we didn't like at the time. >> it didn't work. >> how much more would the stock market be up if we didn't do those things. >> you think cash for clunkers is one of the reasons we are up? come on. come on jonas. cash for clunkers. >> a lot of people, including

, d.c., asked students to compare president george w. bush to hitler, saying both abuse powers. what's happening here? >> brenda, it is disgraceful. when you are in sixth grade, you should be learning patriotism, respecting the president of the united states, singing the national anthem, revering your country, for crying out loud. too often now, we see liberals cloaking, i guess this was supposed to be a case in critical thinking as a way to demean the country and demean the president. look, i'm no fan of president obama, but to teach stuff like this to a sixth grader? you want to teach critical thinking, start when they are in high school and college. when you are in elementary school and middle school, teach how to honor the united states of america and the president of the united states. this is disgraceful. >> sasha, are you outraged by this? >> i think it's insane. also, think about cultural liberalism. i think what i would be outraged about is where you have states that teach creationism, actually teach it in science classes to the detriment of facts. i think that is much

increased drilling. the other more important fact is that when george bush took office, we were reliant, 44% on foreign oil. under his watch that dropped to about 32%, under obama's watch. even though all of this increased drilling, it's like my gosh, we're more energy independent, it's gone back up to 40%. so, if, you know, the fact is that we're doing all of this great drilling, then we're not drilling enough and the industry experts say, like toby, if we started opening up, forget about drilling in national park, we drilled where we could drill now, he we would double the supply in a short period of time. >> brenda: jehmu, what do you think about that? >> i think we have to look at the reality. this administration is employing an all of the above strategy. >> how, how? >> there is more drilling, there is focusing on clean energy and we can't just take this irresponsibly. he we can't have more than the gulf of mexico. we have to look at this responsibly and this administration has done this. >> brenda: let me get this around. ed, ed what do you think? >> this is absolutely cra
